    it's similar but not the same entirely. i find it less enjoyable and i'm not an avid user.

    I never used Vine or TikTok but I have seen my fair share of videos posted on YouTube. I agree, some can be highly entertaining. There will be a gap in the market for a new app to take over should TikTok be banned in the US.

    the thing about vine is it was quick, it was entertaining and it was easy.
    and you could use 3rd party apps

    ROFLMAO... thanks for the laugh of the night!

    WFH in this case probably means Working From Home, esepcially with the added context of a wired VPN.

    But still, I needed the laugh... thanks!

    Yeah... I use a combination of things... I'm WFH, and have a wired VPN device for my work laptop. Beyond this, there's a combination of
    devices connected to the TVs. I have my Shield TV, fiance and daughter prefer Fire sticks, and there's also chromecasting. I do watch youtube
    on TV, but will use my phone a lot of the time.

    Shield TV... as in the nVidia shield? I haven't heard about that thing for a long time. Do you stream your PC onto your TV screen?

    My friend sometimes brings his Chromecast along to mine so we can watch football matches on his BT subscription... it's a brillaint versatile device. I don't have anything for my TV as all the apps I need are already on it. If I had to move from house to house, a Chromecast would be nice.

    It's a decent show. You don't have to binge it, you can do it just like
    any syndication show, watching an episode a night during the week to
    wind down.

    If you like "Breaking Bad" should also give "The Shield" a view.

    I'll keep The Shield in mind. The first long running show I have to get through will have to be Game of Thrones. I have never watched it before, so I really must.
